Founder and CEO of didi rugby, Vicky Macqueen, supports Strong Girls Can programme
The founder and CEO of didi rugby, Vicky Macqueen, has thrown her support behind Coach Unlimited’s Strong Girls Can programme.
The former England international forged a career as a PE teacher before launching didi rugby.
And she says there are many reasons why she has decided to back a programme which aims to make teenage girls feel good about who they are what they want to be.
“I am passionate about this topic because I have a background in education and used to be a head of PE,” said Vicky.
“Strong Girls Can is for 13 to 16-year-old girls and aims to empower them and help them to believe in themselves. It encourages them to be strong and proud of who they are.
“These are all things that some may struggle to do with the pressure put on them in today’s social media and celebrity-driven society.
“I want to be a role model for those girls and encourage them to be who they want to be and make the best future for themselves that they can do.
“I am fully behind the programme and am looking forward to being involved with Strong Girls Can.”
